Applications that work with PerfectTablePlan

Our philosophy for PerfectTablePlan is to do one thing (table plans) really well, rather than try to spread ourselves too thin. But, due to extensive import and export capabilities, PerfectTablePlan can easily integrate with many other applications. Here are a couple of other applications that might compliment your use of PerfectTablePlan. 

Linked Software Membership Management System

lodgedatThose with a Masonic connection might be interested in LodgeDat (www.lodgedat.co.uk).  Designed to ease the work of Officers in Masonic orders, LodgeDat is a database system which interfaces with Microsoft Office.  It provides the means to store and manage information about members and visitors and their connections with unlimited lodges, chapters, etc, it also handles meetings and seating. Regular seating positions can be saved to be used over again, simplifying the process of assigning seats.

LodgeDat integrates with PerfectTablePlan by simplifying the export process, producing a text file in CSV format.  Fields are exported from LodgeDat in the same order as the dropdown menus in PerfectTablePlan to ease their selection during the import process. Once imported the strength and flexibility of PerfectTablePlan can be brought to bear to fine tune your table plans - or completely change them!
